    [SOLVED (sort of)] Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Mouse/Keyboard 7000/8000 combo

    I bought this not too long ago and it worked great in my ubuntu 8.04 install. When in windows I decided to pair the bluetooth combo with a different bluetooth dongle. After changing it back to the original MS dongle (which I used in ubuntu) the keyboard no longer responds in ubuntu. It works in the CMOS, it works on my windows computer, but not in ubuntu anymore. Mouse works fine, and so does the touch pad on the keyboard.

    Is there any way around this? I've tried re-pairing, and waiting a very long time...

    I'm experiencing the same problem. It has been working in Karmic fine, and just stopped working recently.

    What pisses me off is how it worked before I unsynced them, and now they I resynced them they dont. Unless I'm crazy, I don't see how that could have caused an issue.

    ...bump.

    Edit: kh1116, I've also posted this in linuxquestions.org's forum here:

    Edit again,
    kh1116, I found this... he appears to be using MS BT kb and mouse as well. Since I am not home I cannot try this but if you are, give it a shot and let me know if it works! You will need a wired keyboard to get this working though...
